Karachi Kings have exited from the Pakistan Super League (PSL) but it was a personal milestone for their star fast bowler, Mohammad Amir. The left-arm pacer played his last match for the Kings before announcing his retirement from international cricket last year.
Amir took one wicket in his final appearance for the Kings, finishing with 41 wickets in 47 matches for the franchise. He had joined Karachi Kings in 2018 and played an instrumental role in helping them win their first PSL title in 2020.
Although Amir’s international career ended on a sour note, his contribution to the Kings in the PSL was immense. He was one of the leading wicket-takers for the team and played a crucial role in many of their victories.
The Kings, however, had a disappointing campaign this year and failed to qualify for the playoffs. They won only two of their eight matches in the group stage and finished fifth in the points table.
Despite the team’s poor performance, Amir can take pride in his personal achievement of finishing as the highest wicket-taker for the Kings in the PSL. His retirement from international cricket might have come as a shock to many, but his legacy in the PSL will live on.
